Hi all, do any of you have a doctor that hates doing forms and takes forever?   How do you just go to a new doctor when the old ones got all your history?   I wrote him a letter today telling him that because of his delay I will have to file for bankruptcy and will be homeless by the end of the month.   I do not qualify for income assistance, it will be months to get CPP disability benefits for which he would have to do forms nor do I qualify for employment insurance disability benefits for witch he would have to do more forms.   I guess I’ll just pitch a tent in front of his office until I get my forms and some funds.   The worst that can happen is I get arrested then at least I would have a roof over my head three squares a day and my meds would be paid for.   Anyone with suggestions I’m all ears.

Hey Bryan,
I went through all the hustle and bustle of applying for CPP and AISH (Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped).  You're right, it does take months.  For me, it took a year.  My first request for benefits resulted in a denial.  So I had to appeal the decision.  It took forever. Even with all the doctor letters (and I had a pile), I was denide. 
I'm surprised that your new doctor isn't being proactive in getting these letters written. Have you had all your files transferred over from your old doctor?  Gosh, this new one should know how critical it is to get this going fast. 
Keep "harrassing" your doctor until he gets it.  I wish I had more suggestions for you Bryan.  My issue was with the government denying me.  My doctor was great.  I'm sorry you're facing this.  It just adds more stress to your life and that's not healthy at all.
Keep us posted okay?
